So, went looking for ants and got Desert subterranean termites instead. A bunch of wood (about 8 medium sized pieces) with termites inside it. I am not sure how many termites I got, but I don't think I got any secondary reproductives. I "hope" I didn't get alates or they'll fly everywhere...but I doubt I got any of those. Not a big deal not having reproductives or the queen, as the little workers I got will turn into reproductives in 6 months anyway. Then after that, another 6 months for the first workers. Which at that point, I should start seeing a lot of termites after a year. My last colony (they were Arid-land subterranean termites though) got HUGE after a year. My colony of them had over 500 new little nymphs roaming around after having them for a year. Desert subterranean termites should be about the same, depending how many secondary reproductives they get.
In the next few hours, I'll have a better idea of how many termites I have. It seems like I might have got more than I thought, but termites do tend to pack themselves tightly together in wood.
The only problem I might end up having is the plastic isn't that great quality, so they could eat their way out. I'll just have to get a glass tank if they do. It won't happen that fast (if they do).
